Fake Laugh shares new track ‘Near You’

It’s the third single from his upcoming album ‘Dining Alone’.

With his new album ‘Dining Alone’ set to land on 13th March, Fake Laugh - aka Kamran Khan - is giving us our third taste of what to expect with charmingly infectious new track ‘Near You’.

“This is quite an old song, which I started writing a few years ago when I had a dizzying crush on someone that I hadn’t known for very long,” Kamran explains. “It’s about the feeling of just not knowing what to do with yourself in the company of that person, and in the quest for their affection, acting like an absolute fool.”

It was fun to revisit this song and decorate it with some more interesting instrumentation than I probably would have done a few years ago. I’m not sure if it’s the type of song I’ll write again but I always knew it would be released at some point because that chorus just simply pops… If I may so myself”
